Please send answers to the following questions.

1. Number of beds in your facility

2. IV team FTE's, or how many people in your IV team.

3. Functions of the team:

         PIV access

            Difficult access only

            All IV access

         PICC placement

         Dressing changes for PICC and central lines

         Declotting the lines

         Other duties

Thank you
